What will the MSW developers think of next?

CSR tells me to use MSW to upload 85 MB core dump file directly to the case.
OK, sounds good - until I try to do it.
The core dump file name:
Attempt to upload and MSW responds with:
Sorry, file name is more than 50 characters. Please rename the file.
How is it the developers of MSW didn't anticipate - or recognize - the actual core dump file name size when they built the dialog?
And if I rename it, how it is going to reflect the specific information related to the core dump?
Left hand - right hand.

Yes, this one really irritates me. Seems ludicrously short-sighted. It's not just that the firewall will generate names over this limit, also it will generate names close to the limit and by the time I add [say] the device name to the file, it's too long. Sure, we can upload files that are hundreds of MB, but can't spare a few bytes for the filename? What is going on???
Maybe the backend is still an old IBM mainframe...
"What is going on???"
Agile development / DevOPs / whatever buzzword you want to use for a complete lack of forethought when managing projects.
Actually, the back-end of the Support Cases is in SalesForce. It's only the absolutely awful front-end in MSW that's a total mess.
@Lark , @TKWITS , @Arkwright , thanks for bringing up this concern. I've shared this file name limitation with our Product Management team, to be reviewed.
